When talking of ear piercing, people have long been over a traditional earlobe piercing. Tragus piercing is on top of the trend right now, and no wonder why tragus piercing is invading the fashion industry.
It’s a gorgeous, unique statement piece that will make you stand out from the ground. However, first, you’ll need an ultimate guide. In this article, we will discuss all the guides that you’ll need, care tips, and pain level for your preparation. Let’s get to it.
What You Should Know Before Having Tragus Piercing
To shortly explain what a tragus piercing is, we will need your hand a little bit. Reach out to the part of the ear that connects to the side of your face. Can you touch that small, center cartilage? That’s precisely where the tragus piercing would go. Believe us, explaining it in this way is much easier for you than using all medical statements, you won’t have time for that.
Now, before getting a gorgeous tragus piercing, you’ll need to know about its risks. No piercing comes without any risk, so it’s much better to read some caution first. Tragus piercing, just like any other piercing, is a puncture wound that introduces your body with a foreign object. It comes with the risk of swelling, scars, refection, and tearing. However, the worst thing that can happen is infection. And do we have to stress the danger of infection anymore since we have done so much previously?

Then the next important thing to do is to find a reputable studio with a professional piercer. Stay away from any studio that uses a piercing for any piercing location. The gun will not only damage your cartilage, making the situation really terrible but also affect your eardrum since the noise is so loud.
Tragus Piercing Pain Level
Of course, as for the preparation, this is the question that our clients asked the most. Even if it looks insane, tragus piercing is, in fact, one of the least hurtful piercing positions. There are not many nerve endings in the tragus, so it might feel like a powerful pinch that will make your tears up a little bit. But that’s it. Most customers feedback said that it’s just a 6 on the scale of 10 and that pain will pass in minutes after the session.
What To Do To Take Care Of A Tragus Piercing?
The first thing you should remember is never, ever, ever, touch the piercing. Your hands carry almost every bacteria in this world, and would you want any getting to your open wound? We guess not. Do not touch, do not wear headphones, or let any object touch the piercing.
You will need to keep your mind on your sleeping habits as well. Avoid sleeping on the side of the piercing and change your pillowcase regularly.
And last but not least, you must keep your piercing area dry and clean as much as possible. Clean it after taking a shower to make sure no piece of soap or shampoo can be stuck anywhere around your tragus piercing. A wet ear is the perfect party ground for germs and bacteria, and don’t turn yourself into their feast.
A decent tragus piercing will take around 2 months up to 6 months to heal completely. And during that time you should be careful around it. And that’s it. Now you’re fully packed with the necessary information to get a tragus piercing. Hit us up if there is any concern, and we’re always available for you to get your tragus pierced.
